Recover deleted files on CDUDF (Direct CD)

I'm trying to help a friend recover some files from a CD he created using Roxio's Direct CD. He deleted a directory by mistake and wants to get it back. Without Roxio's Platinum version, the Undelete feature is disabled.
Is it possible to get those files off with Linux? It's not a rewritable cd so I know they're still on the disc but I'm not sure how to get to them. I'd like to show him a real-world example of why linux is a nicer system to play with!
Any help is appreciated.

I don't know what to use to disect cd's, but if you want to spook your friend, you could run Autopsy on his hard drive in an effort to find the files he lost on the cd. They must have been on his hard drive prior to burnin them to cd. He will probably be a little spooked as to what all is recoverable on his hard drive after thinking he deleted stuff.

You can use a live linux cd such as:
